Most hedges in Quebec are made of cedar. However, this species requires specific maintenance to develop well and harmoniously. At least once a year, it should be pruned. This operation involves the production of a significant amount of debris. These are the scraps. These can clutter up the space and homeowners may not know what to do with them. What can we do with it?
Cedar is appreciated for its beautiful appearance, but also for its ability to effectively delineate spaces. By placing this tree in your garden, you are sure to preserve your privacy from your gardens. For your information, Thuja Occidentalis is the species that grows in Quebec. But no matter which family of cedar you choose, you must be diligent in your maintenance efforts. In particular, it must be pruned.
Cedar pruning is essential to control the development of the tree. This operation also makes it denser and the leaves greener. It is usually done once a year, between May and September. Note, however, that the hedge trimmer or shears should be used only when the new growth has developed well. These can be recognized by their lighter color.
The pruning of a cedar hedge can be done by yourself, provided you have the necessary equipment. Nevertheless, it is recommended to entrust this operation to an experienced professional who is familiar with the practical and aesthetic requirements. At Arboxygen, we can take care of it. We intervene on the South Shore of Montreal as well as in Granby and the surrounding area.
Trimming a cedar hedge produces a lot of waste: leaves, twigs and pieces of branches are all debris that will litter your garden. It is necessary to get rid of them to avoid cluttering your garden unnecessarily.
But what should we do with it? First, the scraps must be collected and put into bags to be set aside. It is important to know that specialized companies can be asked to collect them. In this case, make sure to store the bags in a place that is easily accessible to the collectors. It is also possible to bring them back yourself to the drop-off points provided for this purpose.
It is important to know that the waste collected in this way will be transformed, responding to both ecological and environmental issues. Among other things, they will be used to produce oil, using processes that respect the concept of sustainable development.
